Games Radar

So what do players want? Well, ArenaNet thinks we'll want to see the legacy of our original Guild Wars avatars survive the aftermath of our inevitable exodus to greener pastures in Guild Wars 2. It's been known for quite some time that Eye of the North's Hall of Monuments will preserve your characters' achievements from the original campaigns while nudging you towards the upcoming sequel. But details on how the Hall of Monuments will work and what kind of achievements they'll provide has been shrouded in mystery until now.


In the new areas of Guild Wars: Eye of the North, players learn the stories of the new or reworked races and can curry their favor through missions and even unique mini-games. For example, the Norn have an arena combat game. There, players engage in single combat with famous NPCs they've met previously in their Guild Wars career. If the player wins, they gain favor with the Norn.
